Chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) produced in Mexico is “kabuli” type with white grain, and pronounced rugosity. It is used for human consumption covering the niches in Europe and the Middle East. Mexico is one of the main chickpea exporters due to the production of cultivars with such characteristics which have made them to be recognized as “Mexican” type chickpeas. “Jumbo 2010”is a chickpea cultivar of white grain generated by INIFAP, product of the simple cross  “Dwelley” x “Blanco Sinaloa-92”. The leaf is compound, with large, oval, and semi-opaque leaflets. The flower is white, and the pod is large (25-30mm), and green color with medium intensity during the grain-filling period. The grain has caliber 34-36 seeds/30 g of weight, and it is the cultivar with the largest grain size released in Mexico. It presents 97% average of quality export grain, as it passes through a 9 mm diameter sieve. The grain is whitish cream, with pronounced rugosity, and angular shaped. Cooking time is rather similar to “Blanco Sinaloa-92” (between 35 and 40 min, after wetting the grain for 12 h). In the central region of Sinaloa Mexico, during the last five years “Jumbo 2010” has shown an average grain yield of 2,400 kg/ha for export, overcoming with 200 kg/ha “Blanco Sinaloa-92”the cultivar with the highest area sown.

Keywords: Cicer arietinum L., export caliber, Blanco Sinaloa-92
